God's Word

Exodus 14:21-22
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. (22) And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 

Over the years, I’ve read of many explanations of different occurrences in the Bible, created in order to demonstrate how Biblical evens could have occurred without actually being miracles. I don’t know if the authors of such articles are Christians with doubts attempting to bolster up their own trembling faith, or if they are non-believers trying to boldfacedly destroy Scripture. . . in my mind the both paths are equal in their end result.

What ever rationale or logic or name you might put upon it, God’s word is either entirely Spirit inspired and infallible or it might as well be totally a construction of myths and folk tales and thereby wholly irrelevant. If the Bible is the Word of God, then it is without error, it needs no adjustment or modification and is worthy of being followed. If the Bible contains error, then it cannot be the Word of God for He contains no error, and in this case you may as well ignore it, for if It contains one error then what would prevent It from having a thousand errors.

In my opinion it is very much an all or nothing proposition. In the above passage, the argument is put forth that it was a mere weather front which cleared the water from in front of the Hebrews. . . but for one detail that might have been possible: “and the waters were a wall unto them on their right and, and on their left.” I tell you that there is no earthly wind, which could pile up water in a wall on both the left and right sides of a passage through the open sea. In the natural, neither wind nor water behave in such a manner. With no obstruction in front of it, water must be pushed in front of a wind, not pile up into a wall.

I do not pretend to know how God accomplished this feat. . . It is simply an incomprehensible divine miracle. . . In like manner, Jesus healed the deaf, blind, and lame. . . He was born of a literal virgin. . .raised the dead and furthermore He raised Himself from the dead. . .He demonstrated again and again that He had complete control of water. He walked on it, turned it into wine, spoke and immediately it calmed. The same water which in the Old Testament, was an instrument of planetary destruction, in the New Testament becomes a vehicle of salvation available to every man and woman through baptism. . .

He did all these things that we might see that He was and is GOD manifest in the flesh and by this knowledge come to Him. . . worship Him. . . adore Him. . . believe on Him and be saved from our sins. . .

I love you my God. . .
I love you my Lord. . .

I believe. . .
